The Century League Scholarship is a $500 tuition waiver awarded annually to a full-time UACCM student from Conway County. Scholarships from this endowed fund will be given out beginning in fall 2018. Applicants must complete the scholarship application and submit a 500-1,000 word essay on the topic, “Why is community service important?,” to the UACCM Financial Aid Office to be eligible for this award. Award recipients are selected by the UACCM Scholarship Committee.

As a nonprofit organization established in 1982, the Century League’s mission is to promote community development and improvement to be ready to act upon matters concerning local, state, and national welfare; to help in assessing the needs of the community and gathering people and resources to meet these needs; and to aid in the fellowship among residents of Conway County.
